It was a beautiful sunny afternoon as I sat and watched a Wimbledon Tennis match on the No 1 Court. I breathed in, and smiled. After having three children in a little over three years, I’d forgotten who I was and realised that TopShop chick was gone. Watching my friends laughing, all holding what seemed to be bottomless glasses of Pimm’s, I realised we had morphed into ladies: Wimbledon ladies. Ladies who cared about what they wore, where to go and absolutely everything else that wasn’t about being a mum, but about being who we were. When I hit 15k followers on Twitter, it was clear that I wasn’t the only one. So I launched LadyWimbledon.com – a team of journalists and experts in fashion, beauty, lifestyle, news, and everything that cuts through the noise and tells us what we want to know. I hope you join our guest list as we love nothing more than inviting our guests to VIP launches, parties and restaurants.
There is one man who’s had a profound, important and lasting impact on me. My father. He was such a charismatic individual. He always had time for people. He always had a story to share, and it always ended in tears of laughter from all around. If there was an occasion – be it a birthday, Christmas or Easter – it would be made momentous.
Life was made for celebrating the good times and I know how proud he would be that his ethos is played out in Bombshell events. If you have a product or service that is worth shouting about, believe me, I will climb to the rooftops and dance with you so everyone can hear.

As the Wimbledon Gent I feel my role is to focus on what it is to be a man in SW London and Wimbledon. Look for trends and fashion that have relevance to the modern gent – and what can set him apart from those around him. In the same light I believe that in the modern world, people, not just men, are looking for a sense of fun. Wimbledon and SW London has so much to offer in the world of sport and recreation, and that’s definitely something to shout about.
